Yes we can. The material would be synthetic leather (better than nauga- hyde) on the outside with a felt backing on the inside. Instead of snaps there would be Velcro sewn all around and you (the customer) would put the other part of the Velcro with a sticky backing around the bottom of the rim. If you wanted to you could always reinforce the sticky backing with rug nails.
I've seen the original ones you're talking about and I think this might be better. I always noticed the material near the snaps ripping. With Velcro all the way around the tension on the material would be equalized. Plus, when the edge crosses under the beams you could stick the velcro wherever.
You would have to supply us with a template. Tack a large piece of brown artist's paper to the bottom and then either cut it or draw the outline.
It would come in either black, brown or white. Price would probably be around $190 depending upon size, plus shipping and handling.
